An unusual method of bringing two single parents together in rural Britain… hedgehogs, rescued hedgehogs. Victoria is a single mom and has single handedly been saving hedgehogs and releasing them in a nearby manor’s garden with the help of her ballerina loving little girl Sophie. With a difficult neighbour is has been a bit of a trial but this photographer has made hedgehogs and their dwindling habitat her life focus.
Enter the new owner of the manor Adam and his son Harry. Adam is a jet setting contractor who buys up properties and builds and repairs them to become financial successes. He takes his son with him with the help of a tutor.
What I love about A Forever Family by Helen Scott Taylor is that the characters are endearing, the romance slow and beautiful, the kids silly and fun and the issues resolvable. An all round feel good story about two single parents in need of support and love within the confines of a family. There is quite a focus on her rescuing and caring for the hedgehogs, which I loved, and a firm commitment of both parents to there children. There is also a side story that ties in about the difficult farmer and his family.
If you are on the look out for a sweet romance with characters that you really do love and wish to see happy A Forever Family is a great choice. I am definitely going to look for more books by Helen Scott Taylor. She has a lovely way with location, words and feelings!
